May Photo A Day : Day 31: Four Things

Needless to say, I will use every opportunity to talk about books. Here are the four books which I am going to review on my book blog soon.


To the uninitiated, I have a separate blog for book reviews, recommendations, current offers etc, called Recommend Books. I buy books like Becky Bloomwood from Shopaholic series buys clothes and shoes. For the last one year or so I have been getting a lot of review copies too. I don't get enough time to even read those, but still I buy books whenever I want to do something exciting. Buying books is my instant pick-me-up.

I also make note of every Book Sale in town, though there aren't many. I have taken the little one to Book Sales when he was barely 3 months, all thanks to hubby. Despite the fact that my two bookshelves and the many other bookshelves around the house are soon going to give away because of the weight of the books, my hubby still indulges my fancies by taking me to whichever book sale I ask him to. 

In last 2 months, I bought 6 books from Landmark in '3-for-2' offer. I also grabbed 3 from Crossword Sale. I ordered 8 books as a gift for myself on my birthday. I will perhaps update this post by a picture of all those books one of these days :-)

By the way, I am hosting a Book Giveaway on my book blog. If you are interested in winning a fiction based on women-centric issue called 'Sea of Innocence' by Kishwar Desai, follow this link.

  3. I haven't read any of them. I must make a list of books to buy from India this July. Did you know kindle books are not available for download in UAE. My life would have been so much easier! :(

    1. Really? I didn't know that. I haven't tried Kindle yet, though planning to do it soon since I already have Tab for so long now. I must make use of it.
      All 4 are latest releases.
